Oprah reveals dream interview: O.J. Simpson

After two and a half decades, daytime talk show host Oprah Winfrey has interviewed seemingly every intriguing figure on the planet.

But during NCTA’s annual Cable Show in Chicago, the queen of television said there are two people that she wishes she could have spoken with during her 25 year reign: O.J. Simpson and Susan Smith.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Winfrey told the Cable Show audience that she hopes to finally land interviews with both Simpson and Smith on her upcoming interview-only show, “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” which will air this January on her new network, OWN.

“I have a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to me,” Winfrey said as the audience roared with approval.

The talk show icon said that before the interview, she would have to be sure that the former football star, (who was acquitted of his ex-wife Nicole’s murder in 1995,) would have to be emotionally prepared to make such a monumental confession on national television.

“I want the interview on the condition that you are ready, Mr. Simpson,” Winfrey said. “And I am going to make that happen, people.” (FESSING UP: Man admits to shooting Tupac)

Oprah’s second dream guest, Susan Smith, is the South Carolina woman who was sentenced to life in prison for murdering her two young children in 1995. Winfrey said she attempted to sit down with Smith on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in hopes of having her explain her thinking and her disturbing actions.

Both Smith and Simpson rejected Oprah’s previous invitations, but the talk show host is hopeful her new, more intimate, one-on-one program will be a more appealing platform to engage in such emotionally-charged interviews.

Thus far, OWN has not boasted ratings anywhere near the level of Winfrey’s massively popular syndicated talk show, but if the queen of television lands high-profile interviews like these, OWN’s rating woes will surely improve.

    This is the only type of interview she will be doing on the “OWN.” What an egomaniac to think she is such a “star” she can have her own network and people will flock to it…kind of sound like Obama…elect hima nd people will come to him. Both are idiots.

    Oprah’s living in a dream world. She would get more truth out of Charles Manson than O.J. Simpson.

    Get up off your big lazy behind and do something that resembles some real due diligence and stop booty licking just to please your adoring audience, heffer. Simpson is not and shouldn’t admit to something he did not do, no matter how many late night Chicago Deep Dish Pizza dreams you keep having. Another miracle on the Mississippi, is not going to happen. His investigators from OMIG keep closing in on these lying shysters, Cochran, Clark, Shapiro, Hodgeman, and Ito who hid the evidence of the Juditha Brown telephone records that indicated that OJ was entering the backseat of a chauffeur driven limo while to LAX at 11PM while his wife was on the phone talking to her mother, Juditha Brown, at the time that both the mother and father initially stated independent of one another; 11PM. Throw your weight behind demanding GTE/Verizon replace that evidence back into the Simpson file because that phony time of 9:37 PM entered by stipulation of these shyster attorneys does not hold water. You live part time in CAL, why don’t you try to drive between Brentwood and Dana Pt. Orange County between 8:45 and 9:37 PM on any night you choose, and stop this “I have a conditional dream nonsense”.

    If anybody could get OJ to confess it would be Oprah. In her autobiography she writes that she befriended two cockroaches when she was a young child living in poverty. And last week, according to the Daily Rash, those cockroaches were found alive in Mississippi! Wow! http://www.thedailyrash.com/?p=2904

      I heard they were not only found alive in Mississippi, but that she gave them both a brand new Prius and a 7 day trip to Australia.

      It’s nice when people who made it remember the ones who helped them along the way.

    Well, that certainly ranks right up there with MLK’s “I have a dream” speech, doesn’t it?

    I suppose it’s likely she’ll get her wish, ‘though. After all, she had a HOPE that some unknown from ChiTown with no qualifications would run for president of the USA and CHANGE it into something completely different from the Republic we all knew and loved. Look how that worked out for her.

    But I do have one suggestion for her–have OJ searched at the door as thoroughly as the TSA searches 6 year-old girls. It wouldn’t do for him to have any flashbacks on national TV, would it?

    This is what a pathological narcissist looks like. “[b]I[/b] have a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to [b]me[/b]”

    Maybe she should start by beating confessions out of the people who sexually abused the girls at her school in Africa.
